Product Overview

Skimender drip repair candles are perfect for temporary repairs of ski or snowboard base gouges at home or on the road. The material is softer than the material used in a repair pistol like the RP360 so overtime it will "cup out" as the snow abrades it...that being said, the repairs are pretty bomber and you can't beat the cost and ease. Simply light one end of these sticks with a lighter, then drip..rather than iron...the molten p-tex into gouges.

  • WARNING!!! They burn extra-hot (in excess of 970°F)...yikes!
  • Please use them carefully because dripping p-tex is hot enough to severely burn skin.
  • Hold a steel scraper under candle when not actually dripping molten p-tex into gouges.
  • Diameter: 9mm
  • Length: 200mm
  • Sold in a bundle of 5 sticks.

How to Use P-Tex Drip Candles

  1. Light stick on fire, allow the flame to get strong.
  2. Hold the stick like you would a pencil.
  3. Hold at a 45° angle about 1" above the gouge (you want a blue flame, not yellow, adjust height to achieve this).
  4. Drip molten P-Tex into gouge working toward yourself, as if you are drawing a line.
  5. When the gouge is filled allow it to cool (20 minutes is good).
  6. Scrape with a sharp metal scraper and you're done!

    Ptex Sticks

    Posted by Chad on Feb 18, 2021

    Worked like a charm! The customer services on my order was amazing! I accidently ordered the wrong Ptex stick. One quick email and 30mins later, the correct ptex sticks were in the mail!

    These were the most affordable sticks that I was able to find anywhere, even with the shipping cost! And they worked great too. Very happy with product. Will buy from again.

    P-tex mends are rarely permanent but the candles did the job I needed easily and quickly. Also the Tognar Toolworks magazine had great insight and advice.

    Best quick fixes

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 17, 2014

    When you have a family of 4 tackling the slopes with snowboards, with every type of nasties sticking out from the ground under all types of conditions, it can get pretty expensive having the boards repaired after every few outings. This is a perfect light patch work, for such an awesome price, which last us all season until the boards are required to undergo major repair works (when needed). What I spent on the tools and these awesome deals, it initially cost me a 1/8 of the price of the repairs all season long. With videos and instructions on "How to", the learning curve is barely anything, beside suffering a bit of clean-up.

    These are great candles. The hole through the center make them burn a lot smoother and you will have a nice consistent drip. Great price and product!
